How does ASX 200 margin trading work?

Margin trading on the ASX 200 means that the trader will use funds that are provided by PrimeXBT to open larger positions while only putting up a small part of the overall position. Essentially, margin trading improves trading results so that traders are able to realize larger profits on successful trades.

This can lead to potentially bigger profits as the position is bigger than the deposit put forward by the traders and they can see the amount leveraged by many multiples, but it is also risky as the losses for a trade that goes the other way can also mean higher losses than expected.

The benefits of ASX 200 trading with leverage

  • Magnified profitsMargin trading is known for its ability to make larger trades compared to deposited amounts. Margin trading is one of the most effective ways to increase potential returns
  • DiversificationMargin trading means there is more available traders' capital left on the account which can be used to open new positions. Diversification allows to reduce market risk.
  • Gaining from the market fall.Margin trading also allows traders to open long and short positions in order to profit from both growing and falling market.

ASX 200 leverage trading example

For example, If a trader takes a long position of $2,000 on the ASX 200 and it rises by 10%, using 5x leverage the same rise becomes a 50% profit, or $1,000. A similar spot trade without leverage would result in only 10% profit, or $200.

Disclaimer: Margin trading also comes with inherent risks if the position moves against the trade. You should never utilize 100% leverage and never invest more than you can afford to lose.
